Is it ok for my ex husbands girlfriend and him to be bathing with my 7 and 5 year old children all together?

My children told me that they are participating in family baths in their tub. This is the second time that this has occurred. They were told by numerous professionals a year ago that this is emotionally confusing for the children and to stop. What are your thoughts?

Thank you so much for your reply. I would be so fine with my son and daughter to be bathing together.. I agree. It is a matter of getting them in the bath and the time but my issue is that their father, the girlfriend, my son and my daughter are all taking a bath together without clothing on. So its the 4 of them in the bath all together. I just would like to know how I should persue this... thank you for any input.

Are the children the same sex? Two boys or two girls? If not I reallly wouldnt do it it can be confusing for them to say absolutely no way to bathe them together its totally up to u...there are gonna evually ask questions whether at bathtime or not...I have three kids and I really dont think about questions they may have when seeing ewch other at bathtime im lucky somedays to get everyone baths ...plz dont ask professionals they are book worms and telling u acording to self help books....i once had a pediatrician and ended up switching because she was young and didnt have kids she gave me all the book knowledge but when I was asking more questions she didnt have the answers..if they have questions since they are old enough to ask just answer them but on there level where they can understand.hope this helps

Thank you for your thoughts...They are all together in the bath as it is a jacuzzi bathtub in the bathroom. My son is 7 and my daughter's 5.

Yeah, that's weird. If it were just the girlfriend and your two kids were both girls, maybe it would be okay. Are your kids girls or boys?
